Last night when we entered the Columbia Gorge it was raining and dark and windy. We pulled off at the first campground we came to and it was so dark we barely found our camping spot. This morning when we woke up and opened the curtains this first picture is what we saw. I took this picture from the step of our motor home; that’s how close we were to the water. We were at the mouth of the John Day River which empties into the Columbia River at a little Corps of Engineers campground called LePage. This morning we turned onto a state park loop road along the Columbia River that goes past many waterfalls in just less than 10 miles. Supposedly there are more tall waterfalls concentrated here than anyplace in the US. Tonight and tomorrow we will camp in the parking lot of Upscale Automotive in Portland while they work on our motor home.
